    Subscription is entirely voluntary, you might want to read this thread.

    Get familiar with the site first, it is a large site with some great members/subscribers as well as sponsors, like Silverprint in the UK, I'll give them a plug as they have the best deals on Ilford film at the moment :D

    Hello. Guess I have to say something about myself. I live in Italy, work as a service technician (plastics) and for me photography is an hobby I've been practicing since Kodachrome age (late '70s). I am just somebody that still loves to put some film trough his camera and see the results, as long as there will be slide film on the shelves and somebody processing it.

    Hello from Richmond, Va. I'd rather be in a darkroom than on a computer(nothing against computers).
